Philip Wilson Earns Construction Safety and Health Certificate from Georgia Tech
What’s the key to an effective safety program and an unparalleled safety record?
Is it about hiring people with a passion for the safety of others? What about encouraging employees to pursue learning opportunities in health and safety topics? Staying on top of regulatory agencies like OSHA and challenging the status quo?
At Eldeco, we think all of these things are important. We work in an industry that has historically accepted that “accidents are a way of life.” Instead, we know accidents are NOT an acceptable part of doing business.
We are proud to announce that Philip Wilson, Safety Coordinator at Eldeco, recently earned a certificate of program completion for the Construction Safety and Health Program at the Georgia Institute of Technology (Georgia Tech).
To complete his certification, Philip took several courses offered by Georgia Tech Professional Education. Over the course of a few years, Philip has expanded his understanding of OSHA regulations, including the 1926 construction code. He has also gained invaluable tips on preventing falls and other hazards.
We are a Learning Organization
As stated in our Company Absolutes, Eldeco is a learning organization. We constantly strive to learn, because there’s no such thing as a “one and done” safety program. Health and safety are ever-evolving, and we want to be on the cutting edge.
We encourage our employees like Philip to pursue a variety of educational opportunities in safety.
In addition to the Construction Safety and Health Certificate, Philip also holds an STSC (Safety Trained Supervisor in Construction) certificate from the Board of Certified Safety Professionals, a BLS (Basic Life Support) Instructor certificate from the American Heart Association, OSHA 30-Hour, and the OSHA 510 and Fall Protection certificates from Georgia Tech.
We are proud to call Philip a member of the Eldeco family! Congratulations, Philip!
